  1. It's a camel spider. Apparently they are native to America as well, just that you don't see them as often as you would in the Middle East.

  2. How can anyone living the desert for nearly 4 decades have never seen a common sun spider!? My son could tell me what they were by the time he was 5 years old. They're everywhere. Not news, LOL!!!!!!!

  3. It's not a mix it's a spider. I've never even seen them bother anyone or pets, they usually come out in very hot weather.

  4. This made news? These things are as common as crickets and are harmless. This guy talks like he discovered the chupacabra trying to get in…good lord people are sissies.

  5. OMG! While I was at the San Antonio Zoo, I saw a cross breed of an Elephant and a Rihno! They called is a Eliphino!

  6. what I saw was far more shocking and strange looking, if the thing I saw is multiplying our livestock and crops will be devasted.

  7. this was in my mailbox today! i grabbed the mail got in the car started looking thru the letters and freaked out!

  8. That's a camel spider. Despite their name, they're not actually spiders; they are solifugids. They may look horrifying on the outside, but they're mostly passive. They do NOT chase you. If they're following you, they're trying to shelter from the harsh sunlight in your shadow. If you leave them alone, they will leave you alone.

  9. I live in New Mexico and we have them everywhere, but I’ve gotten used to them, if I am well informed they do release a painful bit, but they are not deadly. One of dem is my pet his name is Jimmy.

  10. news like this makes me feel very intelligent.

    “ a spider mixed with a scorpion, it’s the stuff made up in nightmares”

  11. my Mom said that when she was a little girl they would get up to 6 to 8 in long and they would come out at night and swarm everywhere crawling up the walls of her house on the porch… one particular bad year she said there's so many of them you couldn't put your hand on the wall without touching one and by the way she lived in McCamey Texas

  12. Thank you for emphasizing it's not poisonous or harmful to humans I'm getting ready to move to Arizona would not want to get bit by this f**** thing

  13. Now an Arizona was bit by a flying spider/scorpion hybrid. One was captured in oklahoma. Book of revelation similarities.

  14. those things are comun here in mexico.
    some are brown others are larger and are pink. they are called " cara de niño". i as a child with my brothers looked under rocks for them and we put them to fight each other.

  15. This is a 'Jerusalem Cricket'.
    Also called 'Child-of-The-Earth'.
    Are found all over the (SW).
    Not poisonous, although does sting!

  16. We get alot of them around here in Southeast NM sometimes especially after it rains after a real long dry and windy season. They are FASSTT and they get alot bigger than these things. We dont call them camel spiders here either they're known as a "Child of the Earth" because they supposedly run at you while screaming but ive never heard it. They are fast though and ive seen them get to be about 3-4 inches long. One night I was watching something about the deadliest animals in North America and they were showing the black widow spider up close in detail with its hairs BUT THEN….I hear and see a child of the earth running right past my head on my bed then runs down it and I jump up in defense mode to never find it again. Theyre fast

  17. They also use those to Jaws to eat their prey inside out they peel the skin back and eat the insides

  18. Nobody in the US called them camel spiders prior to the Gulf War. We just called them sun spiders or wind scorpions. Or solpugids aka solifugids scientifically speaking.

  19. Please stop demonizing these poor creatures! I'm an entomologist and so frustrated at how humans have zero tolerance for insects and arachnids. Many of these are extremely beneficial. The news reporters should actually take some time to read about the ecological role this organism plays and stop promoting fear and hysteria.

  20. So much for “news”. So much misinformation in this video! This is not a mix between a spider and a scorpion. They are in their own class, but in the same order meaning they share a common ancestor but they are not the same as spiders/scorpions. They are without a doubt not insects. 🤣🤣 I can’t even believe this was news. Newsflash: Arthropod found in native habitat. 🎉

  21. Ok, for those who are not from Texas, we call them “Child of the Earth”, basically like a vinagaroon ( not sure how that’s spelled)!! That guy thinks that one is huge? I saw the “Godzilla” of them out on the back steps one night here in Arizona, I have never seen one that big and never want to again!! Damn!! No, they are not poisonous but they will chase you!!! 🙂

  22. Have you seen how fast these are when I lived in texas my cats were chasing one and it left them in the dust
